This weekend Jeff & I headed to Charleston, SC with two of our favorite couples – the Patnodes & the Wilders – to run the Cooper River Bridge Run 10K and enjoy a weekend away! Yes, our first weekend away from the babies! We left them in the very good hands of Gramma & Grandpops (and prayed things would go well so they might be willing to do it again sometime in the next few years – ha) and hit the road!
It was quite a weekend… Jeff & Bert are planning a joint post about some of the more memorable/hilarious moments, so I’ll leave that to them – but we really enjoyed ourselves and had a great time with wonderful friends ! We didn’t quite have the time/ability to train as faithfully as our last 10K (hmmm, I wonder why…) so we were just happy to run the whole thing & complete it in once piece (success for all 6 of us!). Then we got to enjoy lots of delicious food, walking (and walking, and walking…) around King St., the battery, and other Charleston sights, and spending some quality kid-free time with Bert, Holly, Brian, & Jennifer.
The boys didn’t seem too phased by us being gone – I think they enjoyed being spoiled by their grandparents for a few days (& Aunt Ash & Uncle Kyle for a bit!). 🙂 Jeff & I definitely missed them, but enjoyed our little break – I think caring for twins every day makes you a little more ready for some “me/us time” away! We were all pretty happy to see each other again on Sunday, though.
Some weekend highlights in photos (apparently the guys don’t really like getting their pictures taken):

Thanks Patnodes & Wilders for a great trip – and THANK YOU, thank you, thank you Mom & Daddy for allowing us to go and taking such good care of Cullen & Lane while we were gone! We love you!
